    Also because in the aftermath of the Falkirk game the manager said hed look to bring in defensive cover and clearly hes not a defender so hopefully this is still the case.
  2. The Queen of the South Thread

    What was lineup? Hopefully can nab a few on loan from St Johnstone. Was dissapointed to see Jack Aitchison from Celtic go to Dumbaton on loan as he could have been a decent option for us.
  3. Your Club's Top 5 Arseholes

    George O'Boyle (druggie) Leon Knight (nutcase) David Bagan (hazy memory but sure he posed with St Johnstone gear while still at us Barry John Corr (Sure he stormed off after one particular horror show) John Baird/Mark Kerr (moles who tried to undermine the manager) Kerr at least had the decency to be a great player for us Mark Millar (fat overweight wage thief)
  4. The Queen of the South Thread

    Pushing it abit to class Exley as a "signing" just some 17 year old kid from our youth team. Even Watson doesnt really feel anything more than a development signing. Still need a striker and winger

    Finally got a name to the trialist cb. Callum Semple fae Sheffield United

    Thought we played pretty well tbh. As stated Bell done well again. Both trialists done good tonight. Doyle is a great leader and if there is other interest it has to be a good sign he is still with us. Its a good thing that wasnt the Irn Bru cup as the Hearts 1st team would have been put out by our colts in the 2nd half.

    Well now Morgan, Sibbald and Halkett are no longer in the league for me Dobbs is out on his own as streets ahead. We have no idea how the Falkirk lads will be. Harkins has proven over the years and even last year that when fitted in the right kind of system hes a truly class player. Good in the air tick, can tackle tick, two footed tick, physical tick, can use both feet tick, drops deep to start attacks tick, scores goals tick. When he has someone like Dobbs alongside him you will see him at his brilliant best. Id like to hear who people think are better than him when hes on his game! Especially midfielders

    If we could add in 4 quality players our squad would be more than decent. We have the 2 best players in the league already in Dobbie and Harkins. If Dykes and Marsh keep improving then they can supplement them. Then you add in solid players for our level, (Fordyce, Jacobs, Martin, Mercer) and hopefully the versatile Doyle should he sign. Then you have Bell. I know its pre season but I have been very impressed with his confidence and ability. He looks ready to provide useful cover. Stirling can provide more to now he has shed beef. Then we have Brownlie and Todd to come back. So we have a few sensational players and several decent. If we could add the correct signings (hopefully more sensational/decent) then maybe we can have a surprisingly good season.

    How much tonight? Is it pay at gate or arena
  10. The Queen of the South Thread

    Maybe its because there is virtually nothing to report. The fact we built up a re-signing of a guy who is an ok lb but didnt want to stay tells me how much we are scraping the barrel for positive news. Whats the script with Todd? Is he injured? We arent far off having a decent starting 11 but if we get any injuries (which is inevitable) we are screwed. Its looking as though the loan market is the route we are going down as that can be the only explanation as to why we are leaving our business so late and arent looking at more trialists.

    https://www.transfermarkt.co.uk/hunter-ashworth/profil/spieler/400790 Certainly fits the bill
  12. The Queen of the South Thread

    2 trialists only again yesterday. Bit meh. Im presuming they were 2 of Livingstone, Watson and Taylor. Lets get moving as the competitive stuff starts real soon. Our squad is pathetic atm
  13. The Queen of the South Thread

    Aye right! Hes been there best player and has been talked about for future Scotland call ups and moves south. Would probably already be commanding a fee close to 1 million
  14. The Queen of the South Thread

    Well considering how depleted our squad is I was abit dissapointed so few trialists were on show. Of the 5 listed one was Bell, one was Exley and the other 3 included a guy whos probably no more than a youth squad filler Watson. Taylor was pretty awful and Livingstone as Ive said looked decent but surely w could/should be looking at more given how much we need new players. At the end of the day who cares how good/bad they are in these games. As theres nothing to lose we should be looking far and wide to try and see if we can unearth a hidden gem as it looks as though its going to be an almighty struggle with our budget this season.
